    How to install pcmcia wifi card under Mandriva 2007?

    Hello All,

    I'm a newbie in Linux and I have a problem with my Level One LAN PCMCIA WPC-0301 wifi card - it works perfectly under Win, but Mandrive doesn't see it at all, writing "No device found" in Control Center. And installing windows *.inf driver also is in vain - Mandriva answer that there are no hardvare installed. It also doesn't see PCMCIA bus as I think.
    Are there any solutions of this problem? I couldn't find any linux drivers for my card on Internet... Help please!

    I used to have the same problem with my packard bell. Updating the kernel solved it for me.

    first go to
    and there go through the steps to set your urpmi database.

    after this open "install new programs" from mandriva control center and search for kernel-

    ( OR if you prefer just go to console and type su, give root password and then type urpmi kernel- )

    after the installing is finished, reboot the computer and in the boot menu choose to boot from your new kernel ( I think it's listed there as "2.6.17-8" ).
